Deadpool 2 And New Mutants Movies -- Producer Shares New Updates

Simon Kinberg reveals new details.


Producer Simon Kinberg has shared some new insight on Deadpool 2 and New Mutants.

Speaking to Collider, Kinberg said both should enter production sometime in 2017 and release in 2018. For New Mutants, the team is currently waiting on a new draft of the script. Josh Boone (The Fault In Our Stars) is directing.

For Deadpool 2, Ryan Reynolds and the writing team have been "working hard on the script," Kinberg said. The movie is being directed by David Leitch (John Wick), who takes over for the first movie's director, Tim Miller.

"We have a really good script for that movie, and we're into the casting process right now for some of the new characters," he explained. "There aren't a lot of new characters, but there are some big ones, as I'm sure you can imagine. And the plan would be to shoot that movie this year as well and have it come out next year.

"So potentially next year you will have a surfeit of X-Men and X-Men-related movies in theaters."

In other news, a report this week claimed that Kinberg will direct the next X-Men movie, though no official announcements have been made as of yet.

Can't wait to see who they cast to play Cable.

Also I hope Deadpool is starting to be driven a bit more batshit crazy this time. Hopefully talking to his split personalities throughout the movie and the like.
